Giant American flag could break record for world's largest

Local company going for record breaking American flag

SCRANTON - A company in Scranton is looking to build the largest free-flying American flag.

North American Manufacturing has been working on the flag for the last six months.

They plan to beat the current world-record for largest free-flying flag by six inches.

When complete, it will be a little over 60 feet long by 90 wide.

The current record holder for biggest American flag flew over New York city last year.

Workers still need to add a 13th and final stripe to the flag.

They hope to have it flying next in Scranton later this year.

It will take two cranes to lift the flag up because it weighs 400 pounds.
